Kraft Gluten Free And Lactose Free Product List
1 1

17 posts in this topic

I was doing some research today and I came across this Kraft gluten-free and lactose free product list. I thought it was great so I thought I'd share it with you guys!

http://www.kraftcanada.com/assets/docs/KLG_all.pdf

If the above link doesn't work click on this link and scroll down to the bottom where it says: Kraft Canada has a 16-page pdf file listing all their gluten-free products (as well as lactose free and kosher)

Does this list apply to the US products as well? Also, do you know how old this list is? When I contacted Kraft, they were quite uncooperative, telling me to read the label, as all ingredients are listed. However, they never tell you the source of their natural or artificial flavors, so I usually move on down the aisle.

The reason Kraft told you that is because they have a policy of labeling ANY source of an allergen. So if a natural/artificial flavor contains wheat, it will say so in parenthesis after "natural flavor" or the like. If they hold true to their own policy, you CAN just read their labels. (But this is why they aren't so helpful on the phone.)

I'm surprised that they even had a list for Canada.......do they not follow that same labeling procedure there?

Kraft, like Tiffany said, doesn't give out a list, but they don't need to because reading the label can ensure you that the food is safe.....which is exactly what I love about their products. Flavorings, starches, etc. are gluten-free unless otherwise stated by something in parens., for example: natural flavorings (wheat)..........I think it's terrific that they do this; however, if you are still questioning a product and call them up, they'll tell you if a specific products is gluten-free.....cause I asked about Crystal Light before I knew of this policy.

The Kraft Canada list does NOT necessarily apply to the U.S. Do not use it that way.

To hthorvald,

Why in the heck would you be upset with Kraft? Kraft is like we would want every single company to be. I don't want to call companies or carry a list around. I just want to read the label. And that's what you can do with Kraft products. You don't need to ask them where their natural flavors come from, because if it doesn't say wheat, rye, barley or oats, you know it didn't come from there. By ignoring Kraft you are not supporting one the best companies around as far as labeling gluten. Kraft is exactly the opposite of "uncooperative." They are extremely cooperative.

I use many more Kraft products as well.....I feel more comfortable with that company's food cause I feel like they're more careful about gluten....now I actually look for Kraft products to get instead of the other brands.......I really appreciate what they've done for labeling.......they've adopted the labeling standards that I would dream of all manufacturers having one day.

hthorvald,

The list was updated in May 2004 but just to be careful always read ingredients. I am from Canada so

I'm not sure if this list applies in the US.

It probably doesn't apply to the US, as well--otherwise they'd have given me that list when I e-mailed them about a list. Of course, with Kraft's terrific food labelings, that doesn't bother me.....good labeling is really valuable cause a list can go out of date, sort of........

It's good to know that I can trust Kraft. I was counseled by the dietician I see not to eat any foods unless the source of the natural and artificial foods are disclosed. Since most of the Kraft packaging I've come across just said natural flavors, I assumed that they may be of a gluten derivative.

However, my understanding from recent posts is that if the natural or artificial flavors are not gluten-free, Kraft will state the source. Really cool.

I'm assuming the same is with their marshmallows. I'm not sure if gelatin is gluten-free or not, but from all the recent posts, I'm assuming that if it was, they'd list it.

Thanks for all the great comments. I really like this forum

A fair number of the salad dressings are gluten-free but not all. I remember once that involves bacon lists wheat starch. Once again, read the ingredients.

aren't they trying to pass a law that they would have to list on all labels any and all allergens?...if not we should all (everybody with any type of allergy to food products and ingredients) sign like a petition to our state or higher?...but i hope that we don't have to b/c they would be doin somethin like that right now...

That law - which requires all eight major allergens (wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, fish, shellfish, eggs, and soybeans) to be listed in plain english, and requires for definitions of what "gluten-free" means - has been passed and signed, and will change labels (and you can start to see it from some companies) but the changes are not required until 2006, and they've got 4 years to develop the gluten-free definition. It only partly addresses the gluten-free diet, however, since barley, rye, and oats do not have to be listed "in plain english". I believe, however, that - as the law removed the loophole for "natural flavors" - they may still need to be specific in that case. (It would still, it seems allow them to hide oats under avenia stevie (or however you spell its scientific name).)

Here is a link to a website describing the law. It's important to note the exceptions that will be allowed, though: "Ingredients containing or derived from major food allergens can be exempt from the labeling requirements if scientific evidence shows the ingredient lacks allergenic protein, or the ingredient does not pose a risk to human health. Moreover, any highly refined oil or any ingredient derived from a highly refined oil is exempt. For example, a highly refined oil containing an allergenic protein would not be required to list the major food allergen on the label since the allergenic properties of the ingredient should be destroyed during processing. Currently, highly refined oils, raw agricultural commodities, and alcoholic beverages are exempt from the labeling requirements."

So am I safe to assume that the "modified food starch" in Kraft dressings is not Wheat since they label wheat on their prodcuts?

Yes, I would say that the gluten free Kraft dressings are safe to consume since they would clearly label if gluten was present. I've been eating the gluten free and lactose free dressings with no problem and I am super sensitive. I have a salad almost every day and the gluten-free Kraft dressings really make my salads taste better!

      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

She has got to a stage where she clenches and wont let it out because of how sore it is i try to put her on the toilet for it to come a little easier for her but she screams and will try hide herself in a corner and wont let you anywere near her it is heart breaking to watch her.

    • Starting Over with GI Dr.
      Everything I have learned I have learned through this forum or simply from my last EGD results and labs and then looking them up on the internet.  The drs have given no information except for do a gluten free diet.  My understanding is that a repeat EGD is needed to confirm healing.  When I was tested about this time last year I was a Marsh3b.  Which in my research is pretty serious.  I am still having ill effects from god only knows what these days.  I went strictly gluten free June 2015.  I have had glutenings (not by choice) and the last one I had was because of an antibiotic that I took that has sent me through the roof with anxiety issues.  I try to be as careful as possible but it is like it doesn't seem to matter how careful I am I am either aching and hurting in my joints, tired all the time or OK one minute and the next feel like crap and that my world is about to end.  It is very frustrating to say the least when you go to the dr and you are expecting support or some sort of answer and don't get one.  I have eliminated milk from my diet as of about a month and a half ago.  That seemed to help, some.  But I still have days where I hurt and ache in my elbows and in my hands.  I have moments when I am about to freeze to death and sit with a heater and where I live the temps outside are 90+ degrees plus humidity and the AC is not even on.  Most of this has just started happening I would say in the past 4 months or so.  At night when I go to bed I wear sweat pants and a sweat shirt and sleep under 4 blankets and a sheet.  They say my thyroid is fine.  I feel like I have some issues with my nervous system but to be honest with you I haven't seen drs enough to mention this to them because all they are worried about is if I have diarrhea.  Cycling Lady I will be keeping any all records that I have and continue to gather the ones for anything I have done in the future.  .  I have been through health issues with my husband and would keep all of his records and labs so we would have proof.  Just seems like doctors don't care anymore.  The last GP I went to actually listened to me and I will see her again next month after the EGD.  I did give ALL of my records, EGD, labs, medical records, etc. to the new GI prior to our first visit back in January.  She said she reviewed them.  And told me we would re-draw the labs and schedule EGD to check healing when I went to her this month.  We have scheduled the EGD but no mention of labs.  JMG I am having the procedure re-done so that I can see if I am healing.  Mostly because of all the ailments I still have or seem to be developing every day.  I used to be a person who could remember things and get things accomplished but lately that has not been happening and scares me more and more every day. I understand that no procedure is risk free.  I have had 2 C-sections, wisdom teeth removed and tubal ligation.  Each one had its own issues after they were done.  I am a person who has to see it to believe it I guess.  If I don't see it, it is hard for me to understand it.  It is hard to figure this out when I am the one who usually takes care of everyone else but then when I need to be taken care of, nobody knows what to do.  I think that is it in a nut shell.  All that ya'll have told me is a big help.  Around here I have no support groups or even a good friend I can talk to about stuff that would even come close to understanding.  My husband will listen, but he doesn't understand.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
